My Writing Process
I was invited by Regina Puckett to take part in the Writing Process blog tour. Its purpose is to showcase different author methods from over all the world. Regina is best known for such books as Concealed in My Heart and Songs That Whisper. She has won various book and poetry contests. If you get a chance, you should check out her books.
My tour questions:
What am I working on?
I am currently working on the final book in the Heiresses in Love series. I am also working to release an anthology and some other self-published books. I have a collaboration with another writer on a romantic suspense as well.
How does my work differ from others of the same genre?
I think with the historical romance genre, you rarely see a series where the books make big jumps through time. This is a throwback in a way to the old romances that Rosemary Rogers did in the 1970s. They were called bodice rippers then. In a sense, I have jumped through time with my historical romance series. In the Heiresses in Love series, Upon Your Return starts in 1864 and ends in 1868. Its sequel, Upon Your Honor, which will be released through Summer Solstice soon, starts in 1891. The third book, titled Upon Your Love, will be set in 1894. As for my other books, I try not to make my stories so typical for a genre, but rather speak for themselves. A lot of them could fall between genres or sub-genres.
Why do I write what I do?
I love romance. I have loved reading and writing romance stories since I was a kid. I can’t imagine doing anything else.
I start out with random scenes and a basic idea of the plot. As the book develops, I eventually break down and do a major outline to keep myself on track. Then I start to fill in all the details and do the research.
For this tour, a few of my author friends have agreed to carry the torch next week and answer the same four questions. They will be talking about their writing, so I hope you enjoy meeting them.
